Forum: GratefulDead Subject: tuna for those who care

HI Guys,
I went and got to see another brilliant night w/ Hot Tuna w/ a twist. This was a 2 set affair were Jack, Jorma,Barry Mitterhof seated and were playing acoustic,then comes G.E.SMITH, Charlie Musslewhite on harmonica and then comes Jim Lauterdale. They tooled around for an hour each doing his own number or solo and of course Tuna standards.After set break it went all electric w/ guitars ablazin.I've seen them many times but not w/ this much variety of tunes and quality of the quests. G.E Smith really shined and was duelling w/ both JORMA and Barry. The place was equally perfect being the Count Bsaie Theater Red Bank N.J.Guys there is one real thread that links this w/ the Dead.Jim Lauterdale kept refering that his former writing partner was of all people Robert Hunter. Well for those who care it was an evening not soon to forget....

I care! I won't be seeing acoustic Tuna if they come back, just too mellow these days and too much Barry but I'd jump at the chance to see them Electric again or mixing it up like this

I knew I'd see you here! Or, at the antiPatsBelacheat protest meeting. We should make little cards; we could then be card carrying Pats Haters, and when we meet folks we could say "I am a card carrying..." OK, OK, that's just for Dire.

Damn Tll that's a great idea! btw I think next year is going to look GOOD for the Raiders. People can laugh all they want but they're going to beef up their D and tweek the Offense a little. #2rated running game? #2 in sacks 11th over all rated D ( and a lot the bad numbers came from a blowout Tenessee game )? Just don't see why people think they're suck a friggin joke.Just hope there will be a season next year.

Good seeing you take a break from moderarating your CREAM forum. How many members are you up to haha?

Fortunately, I learned well from my forumite friends, and so I post under so many different handles that I feel like there are dozens of members!

All her friends look alike too. These are odd clubs.

Youtube can be a time-tunnel. Instantly transporting a person to long-forgotten times/places.

Acoustic Tuna? I'm not sure about that one either. What I'd really like to see live is the Jorma/Barry duo. I've got a couple of recordings of their acoustic shows and they approach perfection.

why would you go to Jorma/Barry but skip acoustic Tuna? The only difference is no Jack. My deal is they are perfection these days, very impeccible playing but all the ranchiness is gone and they're all grown up acting. That's cool Jorma's all clean and healthy but I liked them all when they were dirty. Plus Jorma let's Barry take most of the solo's which I don't dig.But what the hell they're alive and playing at 70 right?

I fell in love with the Jorma/Barry 04-12-03 Palestra San Bernardino, Chiari, Italy show. As great as Jack is, I don't think he would've added much to that show. But hey, I could be wrong and if push came to shove and Acoustic Tuna was available I'd probably go.

I care. Sounds like an awesome show. What a lineup. Glad they are still at it and mixing it up.
